Angela Grauerholz (b. 1952, Hamburg, West Germany) has been based in Montréal since 1976. She is a graduate of the Kunstschule Alsterdamm in Hamburg in graphic design. She studied literature and linguistics at the University of Hamburg, and received a Master's degree in photography from Concordia University in Montréal in 1980.
Grauerholz's work has consistently challenged and redefined the processes of image making. She is known for her dense, dreamlike black and white photographs, her iconic images and more recently, her coloured images and alternate methods of photographic production. Shifting between the real and the imagined, the photographs of Grauerholz bring into question the nature of fiction and representation, and the authority of representation.
Since 1978 Grauerholz has participated in solo and group exhibitions in Canada and internationally. She has participated in many international exhibitions of distinction including the Biennale of Sydney, Australia (1990), the Documenta IX in Kassel, Germany (1992), and the Carnegie International in Pittsburgh (1995). A touring exhibition of her work, organized by the Musée d'Art Contemporain de Montréal, traveled throughout Canada and Europe in 1995-1996.
In 2006, Grauerholz was awarded Québec's Prix Paul-Émile Borduas for her work in photography and installation.
